After two sluggish weeks at the domestic box office, “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” is on the case and ready to solve the recent slump with an expected gross of more than $ 65 million.

The Warner Bros. film starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law is the follow-up to 2009’s hugely successful “Sherlock Holmes,” which opened with $ 65.4 million and went on to earn over half a billion dollars worldwide.

Chipping away at second place with around $ 40 million will be the debut of Fox’s “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked,” the third installment of the popular family franchise that has made nearly $ 800 million globally.

IMAX will make a splash with preview showings of Paramount’s “Mission: Impossible _ Ghost Protocol” in 300 large format venues in advance of its wide release on Dec. 21. Add to that 125 engagements in selected traditional theaters, and total preview
